I have worked with data and databases for most of my career, in the education and charity sectors as well as the NHS. In recent years I worked for a university with the finance and HR systems, and now delighted to be applying my skills in a completely different area.

In my new role with the SW Neonatal Network, I am mainly in my comfort zone technically, while the world of neonatal care is very new to me. Gaining an understanding of the ways in which care quality and effectiveness are being evaluated and monitored is a steep learning curve. Getting to grips with the requirements around managing the relevant data is an exciting challenge for me.
